My favorite fiction of the decade

I read a lot of books this decade, more than I ever had in any previous decade. Despite being a voracious reader, I’m disappointed not to have read a lot more. I haven’t gotten around yet to so many great books. Nevertheless, I think I’ve read enough of them over the past 10 years to offer a decent list of my favorites.

Here, in no particular order, is my favorite fiction published from 2000-2009.

– Empire Falls, Richard Russo

– John Henry Days, Colson  Whitehead

– Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling

– Drop City, T.C. Boyle

– The Known World, Edward P. Jones

– Atonement, Ian McEwan

– Snow, Orhan Pamuk

– The Road, Cormac McCarthy

– Citizen Vince, Jess Walter

– The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Junot Diaz

– The Motel Life, Willy Vlautin

– The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Michael Chabon

– Inherent Vice, Thomas Pynchon

– The Shadow of the Wind, Carlos Ruiz Zafon

– Dangerous Laughter, Steven Millhauser
